#73: Standing Up for English Language Learners (Part 1)

On today’s podcast, I am joined by high school ELL teacher Amy Metz. Amy has been working with students who speak a different language at home since she began her career in education a little over five years ago, but this year is the first year that she has done so at the high-school level. Teaching students who are at different levels of learning can be difficult, but teaching different levels of content knowledge with different levels of language knowledge, becomes a moving target that only the best can hope to hit. Amy brings those skills and well as the infectious passion for her students to make the difference that is required of here. This is Part one of a two-part episode.
